It's getting exciting now.

I've been making some progress on theis fashion show lark. I've got my evening wear to a point where I can see how it will look and I am so excited. I think it looks good. I've still got the structure in the lining of the top to do and some structural work for one of the other garments in the set, but at least I know it works.

The items for the fantasy category and coming along well too. I've got a base layer that works and a lot og the quilting done. There is going to be a lot of binding to do though, and I srtill need to test the fastenings. I'm sure I have some buckles somewhere which I need to find too.

I've got everything ready for the other categories I just have to get the work done. I feel so much more inclined to work on this now I've got at least one thing I can thing I can really see. I hope I will be able to find other shows to put this stuff in and in some cases other places to wear them.

All sounding very interesting. I won't be able to get to the show, so I'm looking forward to seeing some photos later on!

BTW, if I can get one or two of the three quilt tops I need you to quilt in September ready for FoQ, could I hand them over there?

The items will probably be on display Saturday and Sunday so you may get to see them in the flesh.

Yes, I think a few people will be dropping off quilt tops. I'm taking the van so unless there are a LOT of quilts I'll be fine ;)

Good, will look out for them!

OK, will get a couple of tops ready. One is silk. So much to do this week, and none of it is even for Festival...
